Skip to content

A new collaborative network to support Local Government innovators to share, accelerate and assess new models that work upstream of social problems to help create the conditions that enable citizens’ needs to be met in empowering and inclusive ways.

The Upstream Collaborative will bring together a group of senior, strategic leaders from pioneering councils from across the country to share their experiences and learn from each other as part of a collaborative network. Together, they will test how to build a shared movement of local government leaders experimenting with new operating models to find more effective and sustainable ways to meet citizens’ needs.
